This paper presents a model of teacher-student one-on-one interaction in the design studio we termed design conversations. The purpose of this paper is to describe guidelines for novice studio teachers and also to present a tool for experienced teachers to self-monitor their teaching practice. Furthermore, the paper provides design researchers interested in conducting empirical studies in the design studio with a model of what to expect in the field. Finally, the paper aims to contribute to the field of design education by describing its specific educational setting (the design studio) with its own terms and definitions.
